Summary: What a cool little laptop. It is super thin, weighs just about nothing and has all the features of the bigger models. THe SSD hard drive is very fast and I was expecting a close-to-silently operating laptop because of the drive. The reality is that the fan is doing so much work to keep all this computing power in check that it is in fact noisier than most if not all of the other laptops I have owned.
Summary: Comments about Toshiba Portege R600-S4201: System runs great with all the basic notebook options at 2.6 lbs. The beginning install image is light on bloat ware. Outside the utilities and drivers I only had to remove Norton, Google applications and MS Office. The only fault with this model is that full screen web videos can be choppy, still play in a window.
